It’s not enough that Ryan Gosling is appearing in almost every movie hitting theaters this year, now he’s turning up in amateur videos of street fights.

The video above shows a clash breaking out on a New York street between a few men, seemingly over a painting. Just when things are starting to get really heated, a blonde man with sculpted biceps steps in and proceeds to make peace. And that man appears to be RyGos — or at the very least, his stunt double.

It’s pretty great to see the swoon-worthy actor play the hero in real life, however, the best thing by far about this video is the filmmaker’s excited realization that she’s capturing “the guy from the movie… The Notebook.”
